Founder & CEO LMFT/Supervisor
I am a Licensed Marriage and Family Therapist and a Supervisor candidate. I decided to open this practice in 2018 with Joanna Hedin to provide a positive therapeutic experience for clients in the Summerville and surrounding area. I enjoy working with individuals, couples, and families to address issues and develop solutions. I encourage clients to actively participate in treatment. I believe each person is unique and deserving of understanding and compassion. I have experience in working with Substance Abuse disorders, PTSD, Anxiety, Depression, and adjustment disorders. I have a long history of working with Veterans and their unique issues. In being a veteran myself I have great insight on how to overcome challenges with returning home. I believe every day is a new opportunity to start again in a positive way. Change is positive.
Founder & COO LISW-CP/Supervisor
I am a Licensed Independent Clinical Social Worker and Supervisor. I decided to open this practice in 2018 with Capri Griffith-Gonzalez to provide a positive therapeutic experience for clients in the Summerville and surrounding area. I offer therapy services for all ages to address a variety of challenges one may face in life. My specialties include trauma treatment, PTSD, Depression, Anxiety, family stress, relationship issues, divorce, and parent/child issues. I have worked with youth and families for a number of years, helping them face life and the challenges that occur and improving how the family functions. I strongly believe establishing a trusting therapeutic relationship in a nonjudgmental environment is vital to the success of therapy. My purpose is to help clients reach their goals and improve their quality of life.
I am a Licensed Professional Counselor-Associate (LPC-A) and am working to obtain my certification as a Certified Mental Performance Coach (CMPC). Life can present its challenges at times, and I am here to tell you that you do not have to go through it alone. Each person is on a unique path of life and sometimes we may feel stuck and unsure of the next steps. I value a collaborative relationship where you and I can take those next steps together to accomplish your goals, and move towards positive change and optimal functioning. My specialties include but are not limited to: sport performance, anxiety, depression, stress management/adjustment, grief and loss, self-concept, school issues, anger management, and interpersonal relationships. It is my goal to provide a safe, genuine, non-judgmental, and empowering space throughout the counseling process. Together, we will work to improve overall wellbeing and discover strengths and abilities to overcome different obstacles in life. It would be such a pleasure to be on this journey with you!
One of the best things about being a therapist is the opportunity to empower you, to make you feel strong and heard, and to give you the tools to excel. I want you to feel welcomed and open to communicating feelings and emotions. I strive to provide you comfort and safety and be the listening ear you need. My job is not to judge you or let preconceived notions or beliefs hinder progression, but rather uplift you and set a positive foundation for a healthy therapeutic relationship. Together, we will use therapeutic styles to rework negative thinking and explore emotions and feelings. I work with a wide variety of ages, from young children, adolescents, and into adulthood. I have specialized experience in working with mood disorders, as well as with adolescent behavioral issues (such as conduct disorders). With children, I utilize specific play therapy techniques to allow children to communicate the best way they know how... through PLAY! I never want you to leave sessions feeling alone. I understand you, I hear you, and I'm here for you! The hardest part is done, you found me! Contact me to schedule an appointment, come on in, and let's do this together.
For the past two years, I have worked with adults and teens in recovery from substance use disorder. This also provided me experience with other struggles such as anxiety and depression. My approach is holistic and mindfulness-based. My background in Creative Arts Therapy allows for there to be creativity in the therapeutic space as well. I’m all about peeling away the layers and getting to know what “self” feels the most authentic. I look forward to to helping you taking the first steps towards healing. “The journey of a thousand miles begins with one step”- Lao Tzu
